From SOLIDWORKS, save an assembly to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Launch the Mechanical Scenario Creation App with the Abaqus solver to create two virtual bolt connectors with nuts. Create a Surface-Based contact. Surface-Based contact defines the interaction behavior between two discrete surface regions in the model.... Continued
Learn the proper workflow to upload a SOLIDWORKS part to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and perform a Simulation study using the Structural Model Creation App. Create a Finite Element Model (FEM) from the Sheet Metal part. Apply boundary conditions and load. Create 3 Simulation contour plots.... Continued
Educators and students have been teaching and learning SOLIDWORKS for over 25 years. The SOLIDWORKS Education Edition gives students the tools to engineer, simulate, document and visualize their designs. As SOLIDWORKS has changed, so too has education. There are more... Continued
Why do I teach my first year engineering students about simple stress analysis using 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation? I want them to get excited about their more advanced classes over the next 4 years. Learning the theory to derive complex formulas to understand the variables is essential, but getting early exposure to simulation software, brings theory to reality with instant visualizations and what-ifs. This shows the students the potential of using simulation in the real world. In this lesson, learn the proper workflow to upload a SOLIDWORKS part to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and perform a Static Linear Simulation study using the Abaqus solver.... Continued
Why do I teach my freshmen about simple stress analysis using 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation? I want them to get excited about their advanced classes over the next 4 years.
Learning the theory to derive complex formulas to understand the variables is essential, but getting early exposure to simulation software, brings theory to reality with instant visualizations and what-ifs. This shows the students the potential of using simulation in the real world. Begin with a SOLIDWORKS model and explore 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation workflow for a structural domain.
July is “learning month” for Dassault Systèmes’ employees. But I thought it would be nice to share with all engineering students our 3DEXPERIENCE Physics Simulation playlist on YouTube. It doesn’t matter if you are just about to start your engineering journey... Continued
SOLIDWORKS desktop in education is now connected to advanced simulation with SIMULIA Technology through the 3DEXPERIENCE Engineer offer. Our new engineering simulation portfolio of products allows educators to cover structural mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, multibody dynamics and electromagnetic field simulation... Continued
The Formula SAE Michigan event tests students’ engineering skills in automotive design, business practices, presentation skills and teamwork. The students here are from all over the world and have been working tirelessly for months to get their cars ready to... Continued
Engineering and Science educators are always the first to embrace new technology while developing students’ understanding of foundational theory. Working for the largest engineering and software company in the world, provides me great insight into trends in industry that are... Continued
SOLIDWORKS continues to be a necessary job skill for design and engineering professionals and as a result is taught in schools from middle school and high schools, technical institution and college and universities. SOLIDWORKS desktop is connected to cloud... Continued
The Spaceport America Cup is the world’s largest Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition (IREC) for student rocketry teams. So where in the world do you host a rocket competition? Spaceport America is located between Las Cruces, New Mexico and Truth or... Continued
Robonation’s RoboBoat 2023 Competition, an international event that tests students skills and ingenuity above and below the water, took place last week in Sarasota, Florida USA. RoboBoat is an international competition where students design, build, and compete with self-driving robotic boats, known as ASVs,... Continued
Do you like planes? Do you like to fly? We wanted to share with the SOLIDWORKS community the results of talented engineering students from around the world. This past weekend, the best in aerospace, mechanical, systems and design students gathered... Continued
Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, is the oldest stadium in Major League Baseball and one of its most famous. We were so honored and thrilled to be part of Fenway Park’s Education day, hosting over 4,000 students and... Continued
